Specialty Act Callbacks for Tuesday

Blog Poster Image Pop 2014

NEW!! Here is the Specialty Acts Call Backs List (Tuesday) with Times. We did our best to accommodate your needs but some of you will be back to back with your times, particularly if you requested a specific time frame.

HEY THERE!  Great job everyone!  It’s after midnight, and we’re just finishing up the difficult task of finding which acts to cut.  Thank you so much to everyone who prepared an act – it was so beautiful to see the camaraderie in the room.  I’m honored to be a part of this program :)  Here is a list of the acts we are passing through to round 2 of auditions.  If you are not on here, please do not be discouraged – it can be for any number of reasons (often times as simple as whether or not it had a strong enough application to the theme, or as strong as the others it was up against…another big consideration was variety and uniqueness- of countries, of moods/styles, i.e. dance, singing, comedy, etc).  Since we had to find acts to cut! (the whole point of night one)
Keep up the great work – see you in a few hours!
Ms. Jessica

overseas tour

OVERSEAS TOUR MEETING REMINDER!! On Thursday, May 8th at 7pm, there will be a meeting for all choir students and their parents to learn all about our next international choir tour, scheduled for the summer of 2016. Attending this meeting does not mean you are making a commitment to travel with us, it is just the starting point in what might be a very exciting, life changing experience for YOU!

All current 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th grade students are eligible to travel with us and this will be your only opportunity to travel overseas with the MSHS choir, as we only travel overseas once every four years. This overseas tour is nearly a 50 year tradition here at Shores and we have traveled the world over sharing our love of singing and our passion for seeing the world!

At this meeting, we will reveal the tour location (it’s going to be amazing…trust me!), provide your with a detailed itinerary, as well as introduce you to our new travel company. Learn about our payment schedule, a new online payment option (you can even use a credit card if you choose!) and see a wonderful video highlighting the amazing places where we will sing and tour, investigate and hang out! You will hear our travel agent describe some of the details of the tour and have an opportunity to ask questions.

 

I have worked very hard since last summer to find the best travel company (I interviewed and worked with over 7 different companies before making my final decision), as well as which location to travel and the best price possible for our 12 day, 10 night tour and I am very proud of the final result and trust you will have the experience of a lifetime! 

 

REMINDER: Due May 1st!! The Greater Muskegon Women’s Club is offering their annual fine arts Scholarship again this year. This award can be given to any student in the Muskegon Area Schools in grades 9-11 who meets the criteria and rises to the top of the appliation and review process.

The scholarship money can be used for tuition, books, materials, equipment and or related expenses to furthering and or supporting the artist’s growth.

The applicant must have a 2.5 GPA or higher. The number of scholarships and dollar amounts are to be determined later.

See Mr. Lawton for an application. They are due (at the latest) on May 1st to the Greater Muskegon Women’s Club address on the application. The winner(s) will be notified by June 4th. 

The winner will be required to give a short presentation (3-15 minutes) celebrating their talent at their annual Potluck event.

overseas tour

OVERSEAS TOUR MEETING REMINDER!! On Thursday, May 8th at 7pm, there will be a meeting for all choir students and their parents to learn all about our next international choir tour, scheduled for the summer of 2016. Attending this meeting does not mean you are making a commitment to travel with us, it is just the starting point in what might be a very exciting, life changing experience for YOU!

All current 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th grade students are eligible to travel with us and this will be your only opportunity to travel overseas with the MSHS choir, as we only travel overseas once every four years. This overseas tour is nearly a 50 year tradition here at Shores and we have traveled the world over sharing our love of singing and our passion for seeing the world!

At this meeting, we will reveal the tour location (it’s going to be amazing…trust me!), provide your with a detailed itinerary, as well as introduce you to our new travel company. Learn about our payment schedule, a new online payment option (you can even use a credit card if you choose!) and see a wonderful video highlighting the amazing places where we will sing and tour, investigate and hang out! You will hear our travel agent describe some of the details of the tour and have an opportunity to ask questions.

 

I have worked very hard since last summer to find the best travel company (I interviewed and worked with over 7 different companies before making my final decision), as well as which location to travel and the best price possible for our 12 day, 10 night tour and I am very proud of the final result and trust you will have the experience of a lifetime!
